Wreck Dive off the Coast
Kalkan is a perfect spot if you’re a fan of scuba diving, especially with the number of shipwrecks that can be found in its surrounding waters. There are more than 15 different wrecks within the vicinity of Kalkan and neighbouring Kas, which means that advanced scuba divers will be in their element.
Walk along the Lycian Way
This scenic route stretches for miles, but Kalkan is a good base if you want to enjoy at least some of it. The Lycian Way covers much of the southwest coast, including parts of the Dalaman and Antalya regions. Walk from Kalkan and you can spot ancient ruins, pretty villages and mesmerising views of the coastline.
Sup Drinks on a Roof Terrace
If you’d prefer to put your feet up and chill out on holiday, head to one of the roof terrace bars that Kalkan has on offer, like popular Rami’s Terrace Restaurant. Al fresco dining is a big hit here, thanks to the stunning views - or you could choose to sip cocktails at the yacht club as you look out across the calm seas.
Visit Ancient Patara
Forming part of the Lycian Way trek, the ancient ruins of Patara could easily find their way onto any Turkish bucket list. They’re scattered across the countryside, and include a theatre and stunning agora. There’s a beautiful sandy beach and national park in Patara too, just in case the ruins don’t impress you enough!
